David Raya agrees personal terms with Arsenal

The Gunners are set to increase their bid for the £40 million-rated stopper, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

‘Understand David Raya has signed a preliminary deal with Arsenal on personal terms,’ he tweeted.

‘Brentford have been advised by the player side that he wishes to join Arsenal – and talks between clubs over formula/price are now anticipated to speed.’

Arsenal is looking to replace Aaron Ramsdale with Raya.

Brentford rejected Bayern Munich’s offer of a loan deal with the option to sign Raya permanently, putting Arsenal in pole position.

The Spaniard is not likely to replace Ramsdale as No. 1, but rather to provide more competition for the England international in cup tournaments.

Mikel Arteta is said to be concerned about his backup goalkeeper Matt Turner, who has been linked with a move to Nottingham Forest.

David Raya to Arsenal seems nearing

Raya, who turns 28 next month, have value of £40 million as Brentford ‘s demand. On the other hand, Arsenal wants closer to £30 million.

‘I would want to obtain £40 million,’ said manager Thomas Frank of his goalie. Last season, he was one of the four top keepers in the Premier League.

‘Harry Kane is likely to be worthing more than £100 million. So it’s reasonable for a keeper at his prime.’

Raya has been a target for Arsenal since before they bought Ramsdale from Sheffield United in 2021.

Raya, who has excellent distribution, fits Mikel Arteta’s style of play perfectly.

With one year remaining on his deal, the goaltender at Gtech Community Stadium is likely to depart this summer.

Raya, who has been capped twice by Spain, played every league game for Brentford last season.

Brentford goalkeeper David Raya has ‘agreed personal terms with Arsenal and wishes to join Mikel Arteta’s side… with clubs likely to start further talks over a cost of £40 million.
